Sock it to Me! Spring Looks Inspired By Fashion Bloggers

By | February 27, 2013

All too often, we think of socks as just a necessity and miss the opportunity to make a statement with this quirky accessory. This spring, we’re excited to see many of our favorite fashion bloggers incorporating socks into their coveted looks. Don’t believe us? We’ve compiled our absolute favorites to share with our beloved Heel to Toe fans! Take a cue (or two!) on how to wear socks with your wardrobe this season:

Mix Patterns

Mix winter sweaters with spring patterns and socks!

In early spring, it’s still too cool to hop into a light dress (sans tights, that is). We love this look by Kendi Everyday, perfectly implementing the mix-and-match trend along with her cute socks. Mix a colorblocked sweater with printed skinnies, striped crew socks, and stylish wedge booties for a look that is both fun and flirty.

Go Vintage

Knee high socks and vintage spring dress!

We’re loving the vintage vibe of this look from Steffy’s Pros and Cons! With a perfect combination of old and new, Steffy mixes a seersucker pleated dress with over-the-knee socks, loafers, and an adorable red headband for a splash of color. These socks are not only modest, but also add a little extra coverage for those chilly spring days. We love these ruffled over the knee socks for their girly embellishment!

Give ‘Em the Boot

Casual-cute way to wear socks with boots and a dress!

Boot socks are all the craze, and we’re loving the mix of brights in this look by Anna James of FashBoulevard. Boot socks were in high demand this fall/winter, and we love any way to push this trend into spring! As the weather warms, mix a light chambray shirt or jacket with a flowy dress, knee-high boots, and solid color knee socks.

Play Dress Up

Wear socks with heels and dresses for spring!

We found this gorgeous sock inspiration at Liminas Magazine! While we don’t often see the look in day-to-day life, the trend of wearing socks with dresses and heels is growing on us. Be bold this spring and combine a feminine, pleated dress with a pair of cozy quarter socks and strappy sandals for a fun and flirty look!

Add Layers

Sock inspiration for spring!

With the unpredictable weather patterns of spring, layering is a must! This fab look by The Wicked Ying provides a perfect compliment of mixed prints, layers, and comfy socks. Combine printed, high-waisted shorts with a top in an alternate print, a bright blazer, strappy sandals, and white socks much like these uber affordable ankle socks.
